    I don't know the technical reasons, but I had a similar problem - hit the hotsync button on the Treo and it would hang. What I found is PDANET "hides" the hotsync manager, and "unloads" pdanet when you hit hotsync. Sometimes it doesn't unload it fast enough, and the Treo times out (don't know that you can change the timing). I had to reinstall a bunch of stuff on my laptop, and now PDANET handles the hotsync properly (most of the time).

    3 options
    1. When the hotsync fails, try it again immediately.
    2. Click on the PDANET icon on the tray and exit it, start Hotsync Manager (pain in the neck, but works).
    3. Get a hold of PDANET, others have to be having the same issue.

    Let me know how you make out.

    From PDANET website:

    *****************
    "When I try to Hotsync it says "PdaNet is loading Hotsync Manager to perform Hotsync now and will unload it when finished" but then Hotsync seems to timeout and fail.

    This could happen especially when your machine is slow. You can try to Hotsync again for a couple of times. If it still doesn't work, then you have to exit PdaNet everytime you perform Hotsync."
    *************************

    I guess they know they have a problem, but have no fix yet.

    It seems that I have a bad hot sync cable because when I sync with my desktop cradle it synced perfectly. thanks for the help..but I too have run into the problem of timing out..I just exit pda net hot sync...than restart pdanet again...cheap workaround but it works...thanks again..

    oh, check the cable. Didn't think of that one, but a good place to start.
